Conan O’Brien joined Israeli actor Gal Gadot in a warehouse to learn how to be a superhero. The star of Wonder Woman trained for six months so she could accurately portray the famous heroine. Conan had only 35 minutes, so they had to get busy.
Conan asked for Gadot’s honest opinion on his body, and she quickly assessed that his legs were weak. Her trainer agreed, so they started with some kicks, but that quickly devolved into a can-can style dance with Gadot singing the Israeli folk song “Hava Nagila.”
While Gadot added her Israeli flair, Conan brought his own culture to the table when he threw down the boxing dummy, stomped on its head and said, “This how we do it in Boston!”
Once Conan started rocking the Wonder Woman gold headband and bullet-blocking armbands, things got creative. As Conan blocked imaginary bullets, they quickly turned into real live CGI’d bullets.
And after a fight with Gadot put Conan on the floor, he decided the Wonder Woman costume wasn’t working, so he donned his own CoCo superhero costume and began the last portion of his training. Because Wonder Woman is an expert equestrian, he needed to ride a horse, but without any around, he used the next best thing: a mechanical bull.
Conan airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on TBS.
